Osborne's 1988 single "She's on the Left" would be his final Hot 100 entry, as well as his only R&B hit. After scoring two more substantial R&B hits in the early 1990s, "Only Human" and "If My Brother's in Trouble", Osborne would be absent from the charts for the remainder of the decade. A snippet of "On The Wings of Love" is often played on the E! show The Soup as a reoccurring joke every time Joel McHale mentions the current Bachelor season.
Five decades into a genre-crossing career, Jeffrey Osborne offers his first album of original material in 15 years on Worth It All. The richly deep-toned vocalist started out on the drum set during his teenage years, but by the time he joined then-simmering soul outfit . and contagious uptempo anthems ( Stay with Me Tonight, Don’t You Get So Mad, She’s on the Left ). Worth It All finds Osborne picking up where he left off in the vein of new songs with 2003’s Music Is Life, remarkably displaying as much vocal agility and ease with range as ever atop a variety of urban-contemporary grooves and melodic R&B ballads that often reach back to harmonic and structural sensibilities of ‘80s soul while bearing a. rhythmic foundation that adult-contemporary audiences came to appreciate during the early 2000s.

During this period, Osborne earned three gold album certifications from the RIAA and was nominated for as many Grammy Awards. Throughout the three following decades, Osborne regularly performed but did not record with as much frequency as he had during the '70s and '80s. After he released Only Human on Arista in 1990, he switched to a series of independent labels to release titles such as That's for Sure and Music Is Life, the former of which resulted in another Grammy nomination, and the covers albums From the Soul and A Time for Love
Many, including Mariah, would say that she’s more than earned the right to demand exactly what she wants. This is the woman who entered the music business as an ingenue three decades ago, broke tons of records, and still, to this day, has produced more number one Billboard Hot 100 hits than any other female artist in history. On the subject of writing: A lot of artists say they write, but they don’t really write. No offense to anybody. That’s just what I’ve seen.
